I’m old fashioned in some ways, but pretty much embrace new technology. I did a huge side job this year which netted some discretionary money. Lots put away for savings. But I did buy myself a present recently.
Most of you are probably familiar with this unit, and I love it! I’d used the Forerunner 310 for kayak training and racing, but once out of my boat I didn’t like it much on my bikes. I sold it on craigslist this last summer for what I’d paid for it. This gadget lets me use the same microSD cards for both street navigation and my topo maps I use on my GPSMaps 60csx for backpacking. So, good to go for both road and mtb riding (and that epic trip I’m planning). Plus I got a great price on fleabay.
Then to top it off, my mom sent me birthday money and I splurged for this……….
Thanks Mom. Also a great buy on fleabay; I paid no where near the listed price. The Roam is the newest entry level HD POV. As is, it’s waterproof 1 meter for 1/2 hour. I’ve been getting more into photography (even taking some classes); which has increased my pleasure factor in bike riding. I figured taking video, creating small movies with music would create exponential pleasure.
Hopefully I’ll remember to give a follow-up review after their use. Oh, and someone suggested I change my username to “gadgetgrrl.”
